With the Machine Gunners in France and Palestine

Capt. J. A. D. Hopkirk

Capt. J. A. D. Hopkirk.

For acts of gallantry in the field. On the night 3rd/4th November, 1918, near Le Quesnoy, he displayed great courage and devotion to duty. He conducted S.A.A. and ration limbers through an intense gas and high explosive barrage, and established a forward position for the operations of 4th November. In the succeeding days of the advance the resourcefulness displayed by him in the supply of S.A.A. and rations to forward guns was a striking lesson to junior officers.
